Job description:

Bridge House is a Luton based residential project providing accommodation to homeless families and expectant parents. The service provides short term housing for homeless mothers and their children as well as those aiming for care and/or guardianship of their children.

The support is designed to work with parents and families to gain the valuable skills required to end the cycle of homelessness and enable future independently sustained living.

Attendance hours will be from 11:00 to 19:00 Monday to Friday with some attendance outside these hours as necessary.
